New Panel for 70199

This is the original panel that came with 70199 when we bought it.  Aside from the engine analyzer and an upgraded GPS, it is a 40 year old instrument panel.  Our friend Ben Stedman looked at the wiring behind the panel one day last summer and told me that I should gut everything.

So we did.  Good advice Ben.  This new panel has state-of-the-art avionics.  Scott Bremer at Peninsula Aero Technologies did the work.

Included in the upgrade are:
Garmin G500 with synthetic vision
Garmin GMA350 audio panel
Garmin SL30 NAV/COM
Garmin GTX 327 Transponder
Garmin Aera 550 backup GPS
Electronics International Engine digital engine instruments

I have flown the plane several hours now.  It's the dream plane.
